Craftsman 30CC 4 Stroke Curved Shaft Trimmer

I bought my 30CC 4 cycle Craftsman trimmer a few days ago and so far it has been great, it always starts right up and runs great. The weight balance is a bit off but if that's not an issue to you it is a very nice trimmer. It has a lot of torque for cutting pretty thick weeds, the trimmer head that takes the strips of line is very easy to load and the thick line lasts a good while. It's a good trimmer for the price and I would recommend it.

so-so at best

Bought the 25cc trimmer first but had to many issues with it and after two returns thought I might be better off with the 30cc. Nope same shoddy motor. Unit fouled the spark plug so I cleaned it and it started back up. Next time I went to use it, again no start. Checked plug and cleaned it a little, still no start. Shot in some starter fluid and got it to break lose and it started. Next time I took it out it wouldn't start unless I held the gas on (which the directions tell you not to do) this is the only way I can get it to start. Took it back to Sears and they told me because I didn't buy the extended warranty it was no longer covered. Way to stand behind your products Sears! I will continue to buy hand tools from them but no more power tools.

Hard To Handle

This trimmer is too heavy on the back end. The weight is not distributed evenly. It makes it really hard yo handle and therefore it will not trim evenly. Sears did a really bad design on this trimmer.

had to return it

unfortunately we had to return 4 weedwackers and go elsewhere. The head would not turn because grass wrapped around the shaft. Another wouldn't run. Another had parts missing and on the last one the rope would not recoil.

Balance too far to the rear

Have used this trimmer about 10 times since purchase.

Pros: Powerful, easy start, don't have to mix oil, shoulder strap included

If it were not for the following "Cons" I would have given this a 5 star rating.

Cons: Balance is too far to the rear. From an ergonomics point of view, it is very stressful on your wrist, as you have to pull up while working the trigger with one hand. You have to push down with your other hand which causes undue stress to the shoulder, elbow and forearm. If it were not for the included shoulder strap, this unit would not be manageable at all.

Instead of developing a weed whacker for a 4-cycle engine (which by nature are bigger and heavier than 2-cycle), they used the same basic shaft design and length of the lighter 2-cycle. For a good balance, and therefore a design which would not adversely stress wrist, shoulder and elbow joints, the shaft should have been about 6 inches longer which would have allowed the shoulder strap to be located at the center of gravity (balance point).

A personal preference is that I like the automatic feed style trimmer. I don't like the style used with this model, as it is impossible to maintain a uniform line length.

I would not recommend this model to a friend, though I may end up giving this away to someone I do not know.

Great item

This is a great item. It works great, started up on the first pull. Comes with the shoulder strap and extra wire and fuel stabilizer. great price too.

Too heavy

I thought this 4 cycle trimmer would be more mixing of oil and gas. The problem is that it is way too heavy, and the weight is distributed toward the back so it was a constant fight to keep the head down and steady. I was exhausted after trimming a small yard. Thankfully, Sears took it back and allowed me to exchange for a smaller 2 cycle, which I have tried and love.

Very powerful, almost too powerful!

Does a great job of wacking those weeds, but it's sometimes a little difficult to control.

Chinese junk!

I bought two of these things....returned the first one because it wouldn't fire. Got the same model, used it three times and the pull starter broke. I am officially done with Craftsman. When they start making quality items in the USA again, I may buy something else but for the moment, if it's not made in the USA, I'm not buying it!

Great Weedwacker

I like the idea of not to have to add oil to gas. 4 Cycle works for me. and it is easy to start.

Runs well

Runs well... a little too short for taller folks (6ft or taller)

A little awkward, but good

There were two main reasons I bought this trimmer: 1) it uses straight gas, and 2) it is attachment capable. The unit is a little awkward due to the weight of the motor causing some balance issues, but I purchased the shoulder strap and that greatly helped keep it balanced and level.

two bad apples...

My previous Craftsman 2-cycle gas trimmer lasted 6 years, so I opted to replace it with another Craftsman - this time the 4-cycle with curved shaft that my attachments would still fit. My new unit ran fine twice, and the third time the engine froze - the pull cord fully locked and unusable. So I returned it for an exact replacement, and the second unit has run rough (even after proper choking steps per the directions and warm up) so that mid- to full-throtttle results in extreme hesitation and stalls. Suffice it to say this second unit is going back today and after two attempts, I'm afraid my days with Craftsman trimmers are over.
